Jeremy Lin Has A Replica Of His Jersey Made Entirely Of Fruit Roll-Ups

So this is a thing. The people at Fruit Roll-Ups felt the Knicks star needed this. Why? It's really stupid.

So on February 12th, Jeremy Lin sent this tweet:

No big deal. Just an at-reply to some friends. Quickly forgotten about, right?

Wrong! As soon as they saw it, the people at Fruit Roll-Ups must have immediately gotten on the phone with their best fruit snack artist. They also must have forgotten that Fruit Roll-Up sculpting is a labor-intensive endeavor that could take months. Because Jeremy got this in the mail yesterday, a full TWELVE WEEKS LATER.

How many times during those twelve weeks did this conversation have to happen:

INTERN: Hey Boss, you know that Lin jersey? I know it seemed like a good idea at the time, but you know he stopped playing really well, and now he's hurt so—

BOSS: I'm going to stop you there. Jeremy Lin said he loved us and goddammit he needs to know how much we love him back.

INTERN: I'm just saying, I think we missed the moment on this one. It was an at-reply sent a couple months ago. He's probably forgotten about it. Plus he didn't say Fruit Roll-Up he said fruit snack—

BOSS: You're fired! Also what's an "at-reply"?

The moral is, as always, nobody has their finger on the pulse quite like that snack we all used to eat in the '90s.

The best things at three price points
